Marital Adjustment to Adult Diabetes: Interpersonal Congruence and Spouse Satisfaction.
Peyrot, Mark; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n2 p363-76 May 1988
Investigated adjustment to insulin-treated diabetes among 20 adult patients and spouses. Found illness-related perceptions of patients and spouses were positively correlated and discrepancies decreased with increasing duration of marriage after diagnosis. Marital satisfaction of spouses was negatively related to knowledge about diabetes, perceptions of patient secretiveness, illness difficulty and severity, and discrepancies with patient attitudes.
